This research track will include Georges Bank, Cape Cod/Gulf of Maine, and Southern New England/Mid-Atlantic yellowtail flounder stocks. Research track assessments evaluate new datasets that can either inform or be used in new or existing stock assessment models. The goal is to develop an improved stock assessment for yellowtail flounder that can be used for future management track assessments. This stock assessment will be peer reviewed in the fall of 2024.

More information is available on the Yellowtail Flounder Research Track Working Group webpage.
